5 Steps to a Better Pallet Program

Audit- We will conduct a free on-site audit of your entire process from pallet design to management.

Plan- By considering pallet sourcing, design, usage, and operational requirements, we’re able to develop custom, comprehensive pallet programs that scale across your organization to increase efficiency and lower costs.

Implement- We rigorously test the plan within your operational requirements by conducting an on-site sampling at all locations. We use smart, proven processes to transition to the new system without disruption.

Manage- We deliver complete spend management through changing markets and product requirements. Our experienced team delivers a personalized program of innovation to continue adding efficiencies and cost savings year after year.

Innovate- Add location, security, and environmental data to your supply chain with IntelliPallet™, the industry’s first IoT-based logistics technology for wooden pallets.

If you have any questions about how the process works or would like to get started with having us transform the way your business moves, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

The first step lays the foundation for a smart, data-driven solution by establishing benchmarks for volume, product, price, use, and logistics requirements. Combined with plant-by-plant environmental scans, this data informs the development of the solution framework.

After controlled trials to gauge the effectiveness of recommended changes, the solution is implemented. A typical Pallet Alliance implementation includes depleting old inventory, planning and executing process changeover and expanding the program.

Expansion begins an ongoing cycle of continuous improvement, translating lessons learned to new sites, and modifying pallet designs and ancillary processes.

Optimized processes and long-term partnerships yield solutions managed with the same care and commitment as internal purchasing and operations personnel.
